General Motors is recalling 699 model year 2007-2008 Chevrolet Silverado 2500s & 3500s, and GMC Sierra 2500s and 3500s with non-desiccated, passenger front airbag inflators containing phase stabilized ammonium nitrate (PSAN) propellant that were used as interim remedy parts for previous Takata recalls.
The inflators may explode due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to high absolute humidity, high temperatures, and high temperature cycling.
An inflator explosion may result in sharp metal fragments striking the front passenger or other occupants resulting in serious injury or death.
What to do
GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front passenger airbag inflators free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin February 24, 2020.
Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at (800) 222-1020 or GMC customer service at (866) 522-9559. GM's number for this recall is N192290990.
